<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>BCAPP</b></div><div>He doesn't deserve as much as Tavares as he was a UFA. UFAs get more than RFAs. Would the Leafs have been willing to pay Tavares 11 million AND give up 4 firsts?

In regards to Matthews vs Marner, Matthews is likely a tad overpaid. But he is both a goal scorer and a centre. Both of those are worth a lot more.
In their first two years of their contract Matthews was in another tier to Marner. In their third year (contract year), Marner gets to play with one of the best centres in the league and all of a sudden is in the same tier.

Regardless the most an RFA winger off ELC has gotten in the CBA is Tarasenko at 7.5 million.

The most an RFA winger has ever gotten was Kucherov (but remember Kucherov was a year from UFA so could always have gone to arbitration, gotten 1 year and forced UFA as Stone did).

Everyone can talk about him deserving 10 or 11 million or whatever but it's literally never been done. 9 million is literally unprecedented.</div></div>

We're essentially agreeing that pretty much everyone is overpaid. And although you are right in that a C has a slight edge in value, I don't think it adds $3M over someone of better point production.

Kucherov clearly took a price cut and Aho got a little burned on his offer sheet contract. I think $10-$10.5 for Marner is fair value for both camps. I hope Toronto is able to resign them cause I want Canadian hockey teams to succeed. Dubas just needs to find a way to make it fit
